The Crane -- the first resort hotel ever built on Barbados -- is located on a cliff directly above reef-protected Crane Beach, named the number-one “Best Caribbean Beach” by readers of USA Today in 2015.

Guests descend via glass elevator or staircase from the resort grounds to the soft sand, where swimmers can take invigorating dips in the turquoise waters. The hotel staff provides umbrellas, towels and sun loungers shore-side. Guests can also savor the beach from afar and sip a cup of tea or a tropical cocktail on the veranda.

The architecture of the main building set against the craggy green ridge paints a striking, castle-like picture. The property’s five pools include lagoon-style and cliff-side options. The spa provides a full list of treatments, while a shopping village offers on-site retail therapy.

The Zagat-rated Zen restaurant provides a fine dining experience with Japanese and Thai flavors, coupled with unbeatable views through an all-glass frontage. A beachside bar and grill serves light food and drinks. Three other restaurants, Bar 1887 and in-room dining ensure no guest goes hungry or thirsty.
